Upfront Updates : Shit My Dad Says, The Defenders and Mad Love axed!

CBS has cancelled “The Defenders” (James Belushi, Jerry O’Connell), “Shit my Dad Says” (William Shatner) and “Mad Love” (Jason Biggs, Sarah Chalke).

Staying put are “Hawaii Five-O”, “Blue Bloods”, “Mike & Molly”,

“Dad” was terrible; just intrusive, canned humor. Not surprised it’s gone. Still, a little sad for Shatner who… well, what’s he going to do next? Back to Priceline?

“The Defenders” was a guilty pleasure – much better than I ever expected it to be. I will say that It wasn’t a show I felt I needed to watch it every week though.

Thirdly, “Mad Love” – wasn’t bad either; Biggs and Chalke had good chemistry. I just don’t think the live-studio audience style sitcom works anymore… we need something smarter, less ‘applaud now’.
